• Experience of working in either a social housing / finance / property management role.
• Good numeracy, negotiation and communication skills and a proven track record of meeting targets.
• Ability to manage workloads to meet a range of deadlines

If this sounds like an opportunity you would find interesting and challenging, and you are up for that challenge we look forward to hearing from you.
